Teddy Bear Clinic: 10 am - 12 pm
Teddy Bear Picnic: 12 - 12:30 pm
Kids are invited to bring their favorite stuffed animal to our annual Teddy Bear Clinic for a wellness check-up followed by a tea party!
Each animal will be checked in to our "clinic" with an ID bracelet, and each child will bring their animal in to be examined by a volunteer healthcare professional.
Animals will be weighed and measured, and children will answer questions about their animal's health habits. Is bunny brushing her teeth? Does doggie get exercise every day? Does teddy ever get tummy aches? Is kittycat up to date on her shots?
The next stop is the surgical table. Most animals that visit our clinic are in need of a band-aid, stitches, stickers or even bows in their hair. Our surgical team can handle all these requests!
Before leaving the clinic, each animal will receive a certificate of good health to take home, along with a prescription for healthy eating and activities.
From 12-12:30, everyone is welcome to join us for a picnic featuring juice, fresh fruit and animal crackers. The picnic will be held outside in the park in front of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire if weather permits.
All Teddy Bear Clinic activities are included in regular paid admission to the Children's Museum of New Hampshire and FREE for members!
Thank you to Portsmouth Regional Hospital's Dover Emergency Room for sponsoring the Teddy Bear Clinic in 2018.
